, but the word career in the '60s was hardly ever mentioned. some women went on to navy medical school or law school but most women were expected to have a job until they get married and have children. we came to "newsweek" thinking that this is a fabulous, and it was, a very glamorous job to have in those days. we started as actually women were hired on a male desk to deliver the mail. and you graduated to clipper where you clicked newspapers and deliver them to the riders. if you are really good you got to be a researcher. that was a real exciting job because, in fact, you worked on the stories of the week that were breaking news. you worked with writers, reporters, the editors. and those of us who work in the sections in the back of the magazine, from medicine or the arts or lifestyle or religion, did a lot of reporting as did the women in the business section because new york was the financial capital of the world. so we got to be reporting in addition to the fact checking. and it was a very collegial place. we were good friends with the writers and reporters. it was a patriarchal place.
to reinstate a new lieu that cuts off the final three days of early voting. an appeals court blocked the law pushed through by state republicans. as romney continues to campaign in ohio, president obama is back at the white house this morning. and nbc's tracie potts joins us with all the latest from washington. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, everyone. the president dealing with romney closing the gap in a number of these battleground states, continues to say that the $5 trillion tax cut romney's proposing would add to the deficit and romney insists it is absolutely not true. >> he said if he says it's not true, then it's not true. okay. >> reporter: in battleground ohio, president obama insists mitt romney's tax cut will add $5 trillion to the deficit. >> if it's true that it's not going to add to the deficit, that leaves only one option and that's asking middle class families to foot bill. >> reporter: the president's charge of a $5 trillion tax cut is obviously inaccurate and wrong. >> reporter: romney also in ohio mocked the obama campaign's mocking his plan to cut funds for pbs
in 1991 when he was a student at harvard law school. the man she married was later tapped to head the fcc by president obama in 2009. that's 12 years after the couple divorced, by the way. abc news responded saying in part, this is absurd. martha raddatz is known for her tough, fair reporting which is why it was no surprise to her colleagues inside and outside of abc news that she was chosen by the commission on presidential debates for this assignment. a spokesman for paul ryan and the nonpartisan debate commission both said they have no concern over whether raddatz would be impartial during the debate. >> mika, what do you think? >> she's an incredible journalist. i'm not worried about her being objective. >> not in the least. >> i think these things -- i don't know if she disclosed this, but these things should be out there. we should be as transparent as we can about our family connections. >> exactly. >> i don't know if she was. >> everybody thinks martha raddatz is a great reporter. >> she's fantastic. >> one of the best that we have. that said, abc news should have been transparent
most of the financial institute would say listen, we would go ahead and we would be making more laws, we would be investing more on behalf of the people we represent. but we are not going to make loans -- we will see on the cpb there was a credit card act of 2009 there was a provision, it is an example of the pendulum swing too far one way, that if you were, it was pretty specific, if you were a stay-at-home mom, not a number of a household, so you could be married, have a full-time companion, if that other person work and used it on, you couldn't get access to credit. because you didn't have a job to stay home. now, the cfpb didn't fix it. of everyone else feels about the cpb in terms of the kind thing system are not doing but that's one thing i think they did get right. but that's just one small example of a credit issue. >> look, dodd-frank was written in anger. it was. people are angry and they're trying to cover up their own involvement in this deal. the second thing about that, it had 250 some required new regulations, and 150 some suggested new regulations. >> many of which ha
. however, county by county, they can have the final say? >> well, thomas, the courts just reset the law. it went back to the original law in the state of ohio. so, all along it was up to the county boards of elections, but since the debacle of 2004, county boards have been allowing that last three days, especially in the urban counties. and let us not forget that the type of voting that the secretary of state has cut out has a disproportionate impact on african-american voters. there was just a study that came out that said that african-americans are 26 times more likely to vote early and in person than any other voter in the state of ohio. so, make no mistake about it, the republicans are doing everything they can, whether it's on the federal level or the state level, to try to target african-american voters and poor voters, but this is a victory for all voters in the state of ohio now that the last three days, the boards of elections have that discretion, but it is a victory. >> but if the secretary of state, as you say, has been trying to get this to be a tighter time period, what's
. with the republican-led state houses trying to change the laws. was there too much emphasis put on that? >> first of all, find it extremely insulting to say there was any effort by anyone to suppress the vote. i find that unbelievably insulting and -- >> would you say that with the federal panel that texas -- >> we -- they want -- >> sean works you say that to the federal panel that supports unfair burden against the poor, allotting it to a poll tax, they said this was a poll tax and would be voter suppression in texas and would not be happening there. like they are utilizing in other states. >> okay. so -- in the state of rhode island which i think -- my home state which is pretty controlled by the democratic party, they didn't see too much outrage there when they did it. i think when you look at every poll that's ever come out, 70% to 80% of americans support this, so i think that somehow equate showing a photo i.d. which in most states is given -- free if there is an issue with the person's economic condition, then somehow requiring people to show the same type of thing had would be required t

is have already struck down voter i.d. laws in wisconsin, south carolina and texas and they have done it again. >> if you are pennsylvania voter you will not have to show a photo i.d. this election. a judge ruled against the measure for now saying he didn't believe there was adequate time for voters to easily get a photo i.d. before november 6th. >> stephen: that is ridiculous. they will have their i.d.s by november 6th if they go to the dmv now. but folks, as bad as this is-- (cheers and applause) as bad as this is, there is a silver lining to this story. because according to the ruling, election officials can still ask for photo i.d.s, they just can't prevent people from voting if they don't have it. this could still work. asking for the i.d. is now meaningless but we're still allowed the consolation prize of harassing voters for no reason. and if we just add some other intimidation tactics i think we can make the wrong kind of voters so uncomfortable, they'll just turn around and go home. i say we start with a cavity search. you're free to vote but first you have to let us pull bac

voters must be treated the same way until ohio law, but also grants ohio's 88 election boards the authority to establish how any court can consider this a remedy is stunning. now, he's saying this as his basis to appeal to the supreme court, yet clearly in the 2000 election, it showed how early voting was very crucial. 93,000 ohioans voted in the final three days of early voting in 2008. he wants that cut out this time in fact cut it out and the appeals court reversed him on it. tell me the legal interpretation you get from there. >> there's a lot of latitude in operating the functions of offices around the state, but when you were talking about the fundamental right, equal protection, equal access to the ballot that's what the court says you cannot abuse. the sixth circuit that made this decision is made up of 16 active justices, ten of them are republican appointees. the chief justice is george h.w. bush appointee. nine others from george wish one from -- so we're not talking about some radical liberal circuit court. these injureses understand this is a
